Notes and Updates

Hi parents,


With only 2 more weeks of school left, there will not be homework for the rest of the year. I still encourage students to read every night with books from home or on raz-kids. There is also a great math app, called Math Doodles, which will be helpful for students to practice over the summer.


Last week students had a fun time learning and practicing readers theatre, adapting and writing fairy tales, as well as finishing our math unit. They will continue to finish their units and practice their skills.


Cheers,

Shannon Keane
